DST Faculty Receive Recognition in Teaching First-Year Students

Faculty from the Department of Student Transitions were recently recognized for their participation in the Teaching First-Year Students recognition track through the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE). This CTE recognition track provides faculty with opportunities to deepen their understanding of first-year students and enhance their teaching skills. Specifically, the program goals include the following: Encourage growth in teaching effectiveness & address the unique needs of first-year students, guide faculty members through a systematic professional development process, and provide a campus-wide distinction of commitment to teaching first-year students.

Ms. Vicki Parish, Mr. Adriian Gardner, Mr. Carl Olds, and Dr. Ron Novy successfully completed the year-long program and were honored at a reception on April 17, 2019.
